  1. It’s easy to move around as the front folding handle and rubber tyres make a big difference
  2. I’ve got the 12 ton rock splitter with the Briggs engine and it’s ace. Modded the 2 handle faf controls to a single lever. Never had any problems and it’s chogged through a fair bit of timber
  3. Chess..... strategic...civilised ......and a total fu@king mystery shawshank redemption
  4. That’s heartbreaking mate . I’ll keep my eyes and ears open and put the word out. Fella got an indespention quad trailer stolen from straiton area last week. Possibly the same crowd .

    I think it would be fair to say we’ve all carried a bit too much at times in the past to get a job finished and had a giggle about it. You evolve and learn though. Take on big jobs you need capable kit. To massively overload on a regular basis never ends well.
  6. It is mate. GD 8x5 Takes 5 minutes to put on and take off. Has all bungee cords and Velcro at tailgate👍
  7. I’ve got a custom made cover for an 8x5 caged trailer if you’re interested
  8. First boss used to say the apprentice “was lazier than a glass eye” 😆
  9. I am using the rock 12ton with the Briggs engine and it’s been great. Put about 25m* through it in the past couple of months. Modified the 2 handle operation to a single lever as it makes it a whole lot quicker and easier to use on your own

    Ripped off??

    Gas work is a different ball game but waterworks is a piece of piss with modern fittings

    Ripped off??

    Plumbers seem to have a bit of an attitude regards pricing. £500 a shift for turning up with a couple of spanners is taking the piss.

  13. At 46 the UN diplomat style tolerance of annoyance has now been replaced with Frank doberman on a bad day. And an appreciation of a good cheese 😆
